chief white house correspondent chuck todd also on hand tonight. chuck, there are a lot of people, i'm sure, out there rolling their eyes, wondering how did we get to this point on new year's eve? how did they let it go this far? >> reporter: well, the biggest problem is our political system does not reward compromise. the way these deals have happened in the past, with previous presidents and previous speakers and previous leaders is a compromise is rewarded by the public. and right now, whether it's president obama, whether it was speaker boehner, the two of them couldn't find a way to get to a deal because they didn't want to look like they were ever caving. and when you get to a point where it looks like you're caving on something, then there is negative political effects. now, that's why they've brought in vice president biden, mitch mcconnell, to try to close this thing. and they may close a deal, but there's no guarantee that even any deal they come to an agreement with tonight will actually make it tomorrow. >> and chuck, this congress has, your honor telling us, the lowes

, chuck todd. chuck, is it all but inevitable now? are we going over the cliff? >> reporter: well, we're probably going over the cliff, but even when we go over, it's going to be temporary. but listen to that last point that kelly made. that adds to the silliness of what we are in right now, which is the last throes of these congressional shenanigans. we may get a deal. i talked to some folks on the senate side who think they can get a deal together in the next 48 hours, that there will probably be some meet nth white house in the next 24 to 367 hours. and it's possible they could cobble together something. but i did have others who said to me, particularly those on the house said that said you know what, it's almost easy irat this pointing to over the cliff. next week they get to be cutting taxes, where this week they're raising them, even though they may be passing the exact same piece of legislation, natalie. >> you call it silliness and shenanigans. how will this affect public opinion of our lawmakers if they can't even find a solution to this crisis? >> reporter: well, they'r

white house correspondent and political director chuck todd joins us now. chuck, there are some voices out there saying, good for the house republicans, they're standing on their principles. but a lot of voices are also saying, how much longer is this going to take? >> reporter: it may be a new year but old habits are dying hard with this congress. we're in the last throes of the typical theatrics that have been the norm in washington over the last couple of years. there's going to be a few more shenanigans before the night is over. but they're probably going to end up voting on this bill. if they don't approve it, do realize, if they don't approve it, the senate is not going to take up any bill. and that means this entire fiscal cliff miss will not be solved at all. they'll have to start all over with the new congress which gets sworn in in two days. and it could take weeks and everybody's taxes go up. it doesn't -- not just $250,000. everybody's taxes go up. so it could be a real mess. but i think we're in the last throes of sort of the washington shenanigans. >> and you're standing

, stand by for us, if you please. let's go to nbc's chuck todd. chuck, considering that the house left for the night, what was the senate's incentive for staying and hammering out this deal? >> well, they want a deal. and mitch mcconnell is the one who really wanted a deal because mitch mcconnell made the political calculation that the best leverage that the democrats and the white house had over them in this ongoing budget battle -- and let's remember, that's what we are in the middle of. and we haven't gotten rid of that. this ongoing battle of shaping the federal budget, who pays for deficit reduction, that the tax issue wasn't solved, that that would be a bigger sledgehammer against the republicans. so mcconnell was incentivized to do a deal, and so were all the senate republicans. that's why you saw such an effort in the last two day, particularly on mitch mcconnell to try and hammer out some sort of deal. the president wants a deal. he doesn't want to go over the cliff. now there are a bunch of other democrats that do. but the president didn't want to do it because he wants to be
